Credentials

Education

With more than 35 years experience performing professional voice talent, John began his career as a radio announcer in high school. He attended school in England for two years where his adaptation of various English accents resulted in frequently being asked what part of England he was from.

John studied public speaking and drama in high school and continued to study drama in college. After four years in the Navy, he traveled through Europe, eventually living in Paris, where he performed English-language voice talent and ADR (automated dialog replacement) for the French automaker Renault. After returning to the U.S., John worked in radio and television as a voice and on-camera talent for ten years. Later, as a film actor, corporate spokesman and television host, he studied voice and on-camera performance techniques with several nationally recognized coaches and at KVG Studios in Florida. From time to time, John still works one-on-one with vocal coaches and casting directors to maintain his skills.

Service Description

I can connect to your production facility via Source Live or, through arrangement with outside studios, via ISDN, ipDTL, VoiceConnect or Phone Patch. I can provide raw voice audio in all customary formats - AIFF, WAV, MP3, etc. - via FTP, email or by posting for download on my Web site. I am within driving distance of several full-service audio production facilities in Atlanta.

I do not typically provide music drops, sound effects or mixing, but will be happy to recommend reputable engineers who specialize in audio post production.

Testimonials

If you are a potential client seeking references prior to making a casting decision, I'll be happy to provide you with contact information for one or more producers and directors who will be willing to discuss the quality and dependability of my work. Just ask.

After many years in the extremely competitive voice and on-camera talent environment, I know that a list of references more often serves as a prospecting tool for other voice talents. So, I no longer openly reveal the names of casting directors, production companies, producers or directors with whom I have worked.

By the same token, I would never post your contact information in this publicly-accessible venue.
